Andretti Autosport Chief Operating Officer Rob Edwards says the team has high expectations going into this weekend’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course.
The team head into the month of May on a high note following Kyle Kirkwood’s win in Long Beach with Romain Grosjean in second while last time out at Barber Motorsports Park, Grosjean too pole and finished second behind Scott McLaughlin.
“We are excited to get back to the IMS Road Course where both Colton and Alexander won races for the team last year. Coming off the back of Romain’s pole and P2 at Barber, we have high expectations for the whole team this weekend. The Indy GP kicks off the Month of May for us culminating with the Indy 500. The excitement will build over the next three weeks and we always look forward to the opportunity to share what we do with the local community, friends and family.”
Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda is looking forward to kicking off the month of May at IMS saying:
Last year’s GMR Grand Prix brought many challenges with the changing weather conditions. It was the hardest race I have ever done, but we were able to work through the difficult track conditions and take home a GMR Grand Prix victory. It’s a very big strategy race with the different lap times between the two tire compounds. I’m looking forward to coming back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to kick off the Month of May in the No. 26 Gainbridge Honda.”
Kyle Kirkwood in the No.27 AutoNation Honda is very excited to kick off the month of May saying:
Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a place that us drivers live for. I’m very excited to start the month of May at the GMR Grand Prix. The Andretti Autosport team tends to thrive at the GMR Grand Prix and the event itself always produces fantastic racing. It will be great to be back home in Indiana in the No. 27 AutoNation Honda!”
Romain Grosjean who has a great record in the road course having scored a podium here with Dale Coyne is looking forward to the weekend:
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is an extraordinary place. Its got a unique feeling when you get there, and I’ve always loved driving that track. The GMR Grand Prix has been very kind to me in the past and we have a good bit of momentum heading into this weekend after Barber, so I’m hopeful we can get our first win of the season in the No. 28 DNSFilter / DHL Honda.”
Devlin DeFrancesco is also excited about the IMS road course saying:
I’m looking forward to the GMR Grand Prix road course. I feel confident that the No. 29 Sodexo Honda will be strong. The weather also looks like it could mix some things up this weekend which is always exciting!”
